"Does the Winnipeg chopper realize the entire West End can hear their convo about blow jobs right now?" a woman in the Canadian city tweeted Monday night—and the answer, apparently, was no. Large parts of the city were able to listen in on an explicit conversation between two of the three officers in the police helicopter after its PA system was accidentally switched on during a routine patrol, the CBC reports. One West End resident tells the CBC that she was shocked, but her husband cracked up laughing as they heard one officer ask, "Can you give me a blow job?" and another officer reply, "You have too much body hair" as the chopper flew over their home.

Before the officers realized the mistake and turned the PA off, residents took to social media to share snippets of the conversation—and complain that they missed the X-rated parts. Police have apologized and say disciplinary measures for the officers involved are being considered, the Winnipeg Free Press reports. "We're sincerely apologetic about it," a spokesman says. "We're going to review the situation, I can assure you, and members of the executive are very much aware of the sensitivity and the nature of what was broadcast, and they will be looking into it and ultimately make a determination from there." (A Southwest Airlines pilot accidentally let dozens of other pilots hear his complaint about failing to score with flight attendants at "one of the ugliest bases.")
